We are aware of the recent problems that COMET encountered to provide the subtyping results, and we apologize for it. We are currently working to solve these issues as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
The COMET tool rapidly classifies HIV-1 nucleotide sequences into subtypes. You can submit your sequences either by pasting them in the form (b) or uploading them (a).
|2.2||Additional support for CRF 50_A1D - 78_cpx for HIV-1||2016-12-01|
|2.1||Added bootstrap support levels (100 samples per sequence).||2016-09-22|
|2.0||Rewritten COMET in GO (Uses much less memory, faster; improved accuracy slightly).||2016-09-18|
|1.0||Smaller HIV-1 recombination detection window (should detect more URF), CRF additions to the training set||2014-03-26|
|0.5||new HIV-1 thresholds, should slightly improve the results||2012-06-11|
|0.3||Additional support for CRF 44_BF - 49_cpx for HIV-1||2011-12-20|
(a) upload the sequences in fasta format (you can compress the file with gzip, max. 50MB):
(b) paste the sequences in fasta format (try out example):
The submitted sequences are deleted as soon the results have been generated.
